Kim Neuschel, BS, RN, serves as the Community Engagement Facilitator for WINRS. Kim comes with a long history as a public health practitioner. She served as a local public health nurse for 17 years, working in various neighborhoods with residents, young and old, to identify, prioritize and organize around health issues. She brings a strong background in community organizing and building academic community partnerships. Kim has worked with community residents on issues related to food security, public transportation, community art, violence prevention, youth employment, and mental health. She finds her energy and passion in working at the intersections of health, equity, and community and for this reason is thrilled to be a part of the UW School of Nursing WINRS team. “I am so impressed with the scope and passion of the health science researchers I am meeting and believe strongly that if we can shrink the distance between research and community voice that we can see meaningful shifts towards a more just world.”
